So my next question is, can I copy all the files to a disk and just recopy them to a new install in the appropriate folders so it works?

Perhaps - it depends a bit on what you mean

In an easier way, if you have a separate /home partition on your hard drive, then keep it so that you recover all your program settings after installing Elyssa.

your .virtualbox folder in /home or a virtual box you created for another OS ?
In the first case, it is safe since it is in /home
In the second case it depends on the location you set your virtual box. I think the default option is to put it in /home either so there are chances it is also safe.
